Two Narratives

Focus: Universal Declaration of Human Rights

Article 19 Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression

Value: Justice

There has been conflict between the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel for decades.

In any conflict, people will have validly held but conflicting opinions as to what brought the conflict about and why there is still conflict.

Learning Intention: I am learning to analyse two different viewpoints on the reasons behind the conflict.

Success Criteria: I will have developed a clearer idea of the obstacles to be overcome in order that a peaceful resolution to the conflict may be brought about. I will be able to list the similarities and differences between the two perspectives.
